Alongside my very popular OCN Credit4Learning Level 3 and 4 Understanding and Applying Good Practice with People with Autism, I am available to deliver by arrangement a range of autism related day , half-day and twilight courses (or a hybrid mix of courses) shown below at a time and place convenient for you. Courses which are starred can also be completed as a Level 3 award (accredited by OCN Credit4Learning):

  • Introduction to autism-an overview of the condition and practical support strategies
  • The autism friendly school
  • Autism in the early years*
  • Autism in girls and women
  • Understanding and developing social and interaction skills
  • Understanding and developing communication skills
  • Understanding and increasing flexible responses using structure and visual resources such as schedules and social stories
  • Understanding and supporting sensory needs*
  • Understanding and supporting learning differences
  • Behaviour which challenges us -understanding and successful management*
  • Understanding and supporting mental health and well-being*
  • Pathological Demand Avoidance (Extreme Demand Avoidance)
  • Autism and adolescence and puberty
  • Collecting information for EHCP’s (specifically for parents)
  • Collecting information for the autism diagnostic process (specifically for parents)

All courses are designed to appeal to a range of learning styles using face to face presentation, interactive activities, discussion, group exercises, case studies, reflection, film footage and examples of resources. All courses draw on the voices and experiences of autistic individuals and my professional and family experience.

Costs are dependent on the location of the training (as travel time and accommodation may need to be included) but start from £250 for a “twilight” session (two hours) and include all materials for up to 20 learners. For more than 20 learners there will generally be extra costs for materials. Certificated courses incur extra costs dependent upon the course. Petrol costs are additional at £0.45 per mile outside of a 15-mile radius of Hartlepool, Teesside where I am based. For any queries please use the Contact Form found at the top of this page.

Please be aware that my diary is often full for months ahead so I always advise booking well in advance to avoid disappointment, although I can sometimes find slots for twilights /short sessions in the Teesside area. At the time of writing my next availability for half or full day courses is in March 2020.
